Since the Philadelphia Flyers used an amnesty buyout on goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov he's been unable to find a job anywhere to play goal or at least any job that he wanted. That's reportedly about to change.
According to TSN's Darren Dreger as well as Stephen Whyno of the Canadian Press Bryzgalov is on the verge of signing a contract with the Las Vegas Wranglers of the ECHL. Yup the ECHL.
That would be something. Last season Bryzgalov was making an annual average salary of $5.667 million this season he could be playing two levels below the NHL? Ooouch what a fall.
Las Vegas as we've learned will welcome anything to drum up interest. This is the same franchise that had Mike Tyson sound a siren and played an "indoor" winter classic. Bringing in Bryzgalov would do more than all of that to get them the attention they need.
